Marvel Comics Quietly Drops Longtime X-Men Codename “Scalphunter” Over Potential Concerns of Racism

Marvel has quietly dropped the codename of long-time X-Men villain John Greycrow, a.k.a “Scalphunter” due to the term’s alleged racist connotations. In the long history of comics, some intellectual properties were created to drum up stories of new heroes, and new villains. One such villain was named John Greycrow, a.k.a. “Scalphunter,” who debuted in Uncanny X-Men #210 in 1986 as an assassin for Mister Sinister’s group of Marauders.
